4 ©2005 Trymedia Systems Inc. All Rights Reserved Games & P2P Distribution That Was Then: I was the first person to post legitimate (for-sale) content to a P2P network, back in 2000 Trymedia first made games available via KaZaa in 2001 –Natural extension of our technology (superdistribution) Game publishers didnt object/didnt embrace This Is Now: Over 250 titles available on P2P Networks Most of the top publishers use P2P –Some chaff, others sell. Big movement toward selling Casual Games (e.g. Hearts) increasingly interested in P2P Digital distribution of PC games will become the main sales channel within the next 2-3 years.
